Spot­light on TCM

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - LIFEHEALTH -

A fo­rum on the de­vel­op­ment of health in­dus­try in China was held re­cently in Bei­jing. High-rank­ing of­fi­cials, in­clud­ing Li Da’ning, deputy di­rec­tor with State Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Tra­di­tional Chi­nese Medicine, and Qin Xiaom­ing, deputy pres­i­dent of China Health­care As­so­ci­a­tion, and univer­sity re­searchers at­tended the fo­rum. With the coun­try’s eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, Chi­nese peo­ple now live a bet­ter life and pay more at­ten­tion to their health. The health­care in­dus­try has been thriv­ing in re­cent years. But the in­dus­try should use more TCM, which needs to be bet­ter reg­u­lated, since the profit is so high, ex­perts say. Ac­cord­ing to Qin, the gross value of the health­care in­dus­try in China is 700 bil­lion yuan ($114 bil­lion).
